The 10th annual Kiwanis Kids Fun Run will take place Saturday, July 27, at the Wilsonville High School track from 8:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will begin with a ceremonial opening parade at 9 a.m. and the first heat will be the “Run of the Mascots.”

The Kiwanis Kids Fun Run encourages a healthy and active lifestyle and brings the community together. This year’s theme is “Let your imagination run” in support of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Visit kidsfunrun.org to volunteer, to register your child online or to find more information. In-person registration will be available July 26 from 3 to 6 p.m. or July 27 beginning at 8 a.m.

Thanks to sponsors, the fun run is free to participants. The Wilsonville Spokesman’s annual issue of the Summer Fun Guide, which was published the week of July 15, mistakenly recognized 2012 Kids Fun Run sponsors.
